Travis CI Automated Testing

Travis CI is a continuous integration service which you can easily use to test your GitHub projects.

It is very easy to use the TestingBot Selenium grid together with Travis CI.


Below are the steps to run your Selenium tests via Travis CI, once the tests are up and running you can even display a TestingBot Status badge showcasing your Selenium tests status.

1. Get Travis CI up and running

Sign up at Travis CI and connect your GitHub project with Travis CI.
You can find information on how to do this at the Travis CI Help section.

2. Create a simple selenium test

Add a simple Selenium test to your GitHub project, modify the .travis.yml file in your repository to indicate you want to run a Selenium test.


Example travis.yml file
language: node_js
node_js:
  - 0.8
env:
- [
    {secure: "akuE0dld1Ke9mahjUUrQhUZRYWasdfewfwefewfZlbvOx\nqaPybirPGsDmImvcktaAkjLxpePd0V1+ak+4dws7dTrFfEsdvsdsdvsdvds2\nud1q5oGOzEqfiRGxY/fJHLWlaQ609Bsdfdsfds2VeY1Z/V7N9iQ="},
    {secure: "JGfkAfr/SOlzV+NpgNi3fxP4F2usdfdsveGAppugHj1IxhoyjY\nOp07x4p1hdIfWVF03RqUrPNXkl72+yh53pv2fUzsdfsd3434GRjGy6J6\notuA/N+xs0+TP2ENlCmDauwO32Okfojvj7CgvsdfdsfRyaFzIGWPdw="}
  ]
script:
- "node tests/examples/*.js"

The two secure lines in the above example are your TestingBot key and secret, used to run a test on our Grid.
To generate these 2 lines, you need to install the Travis CI gem and run these commands with your own key and secret:


travis encrypt username/projectname TESTINGBOT_KEY=my_key
travis encrypt username/projectname TESTINGBOT_SECRET=my_secret

Now you can use the encrypted TESTINGBOT_KEY and TESTINGBOT_SECRET environment variables in your tests.
Below is a NodeJS example:

npm install -g selenium-webdriver
var webdriver = require('selenium-webdriver'), driver;
 
driver = new webdriver.Builder().
  withCapabilities({
    'browserName': 'firefox',
    'platform': 'VISTA',
    'version': 'latest',
    'client_key': process.env.TESTINGBOT_KEY,
    'client_secret': process.env.TESTINGBOT_SECRET,
    'name': (process.env.TRAVIS_JOB_ID ? ("Travis Build " + process.env.TRAVIS_JOB_ID) : "Simple Test")
  }).
  usingServer("https://" + testingbotKey + ":" + testingbotSecret +
              "@hub.testingbot.com/wd/hub").
  build();
 
driver.get('https://www.google.com');
 
driver.getTitle().then(function (title) {
    console.log("title is: " + title);
});
 
driver.quit();
